I'll get the blues 'round about midnight
Early with the risin' sun
I'll get to thinkin' bout my sweet woman
And all the good she done
And my heart gets like a hammer
And my eyes get full a-tears
She only been gone about twenty-four hours
But it seem like a thousand years

Boys, I should have loved her more
But you know I didn't treat her right
Yes, I should-a loved her more
But you know I didn't treat her right
You take a woman like that
Need lovin' ev'ryday an night

Now the blues get-a pilin' up on me
But I brought it all on myself
When I should-a been lovin' my woman
I was out with somebody else
Now, here's a mighty hard pill to swallow
But I want all you men to know
You better mind what you are sowin'
Because you've got to reap what you sew

Boys, don't never dog your woman
When you know you're doin' wrong, yourself
Yes, don't never dog your woman
When you know you're doin' wrong, yourself
It'll put the devil in her mind
She will go wild about somebody else

Now, the river runs into the ocean
And the ocean po's into the sea
But if I don't find my sweet woman
Somebody got to bury me

Because I love that woman
Better than I do, myself, hoo
Yes, I love that woman
Better than I do myself, ooo
And it really breaks my heart
But I know she with somebody else.
